About us

UB Music Therapy services is Dominique Piqugard’s private music therapy practice.

UB Music stands for Using music to Better your quality of life through difficult times. We offer music interventions to families, for their children and parents, that have received a diagnosis of a developmental delay or a neurological condition that changes how they can interact and be in their community.

How?

Music helps to stretch, exercise and connect different areas of the brain, to establish a sense of community with others, with our desires to express ourselves with or without words, as well as to access our innate motor skills to entrain to the rhythm of the music.

By putting our focus on the therapeutic goals, which we establish together after the initial assessment, we work together with each family to co-create appropriate muscular therapy interventions that will stimulate and provide opportunities for the individual or group to increase their abilities, as well as simulate a sense of confidence, and an opportunity for the brain to find new circuits and brain pathways to help complete daily activities such as walking, talking and interacting with others, which are now more difficult than ever before after a diagnosis of a neurological condition. What types of neurological disorders can UB music therapy support services?
Please see some examples here. This list is not all possible conditions but a sample of common conditions that are commonly supported by certified music therapists.
